Why See Smashing Pumpkins?
The Pumpkins are back!
Billy Corgan's Smashing Pumpkins created some of the most iconic tracks of the 90s, fashioning an amalgam of progressive rock, heavy metal, goth rock, psychedelia, and dream pop. Although the Pumpkins line-up has famously undergone almost constant upheaval, three of the band's original members are reuniting for this epic 30th anniversary tour including Corgan himself, Jimmy Chamberlin and James Iha. The mammoth US tour will celebrate all the hits from their biggest albums... a MUST for any Pumpkins fan!
Of all the major alternative rock bands of the early '90s, the Smashing Pumpkins were the group least influenced by traditional underground rock. Lead guitarist/songwriter Billy Corgan fashioned an amalgam of progressive rock, heavy metal, goth rock, psychedelia, and dream pop, creating a layered, powerful sound driven by swirling, distorted guitars. Corgan was wise enough to exploit his angst-ridden lyrics, yet he never shied away from rock star posturing, even if he did cloak it in allegedly ironic gestures. In fact, the Smashing Pumpkins became the model for alternative rock success - Nirvana was too destructive and Pearl Jam shunned success.

Come From Away
From the beginning of the pounding percussion line, the energy in the theatre was palpable. I've never felt anything like it!

This is what stage magic is all about. This is live theater at its finest.
